When you feel the tension of the city melt away as you set foot onto Bells at Killcare, you know you’ve come to the right place. After enduring more than double the normal journey time from Sydney
due to a storm, we are welcomed warmly and seated promptly at the award-winning restaurant, and handed a blanket to wrap our wet selves in. This type of generous and intuitive care stood out
all throughout our stay.
Celebrating ten years this year, this luxury boutique hotel located on Bouddi Peninsula on the NSW Central Coast, offers a still and peaceful retreat from the city just a short seaplane or car ride away, with the surrounding Bouddi National Park, beaches and bays, easily accessed and explored.
There are 25 self-contained suites and cottages, dotted across the lush grounds which are landscaped like a fairy tale with blossom trees, walking paths, brooks and ponds. Perfectly secluded, our spacious Deluxe Two-Storey Cottage has a king-size bedroom, bathroom and balcony upstairs, and an open-plan living area downstairs featuring lounge, dining and kitchenette, a smaller bathroom and outdoor deck. Creature comforts are indulged with plush Ralph Lauren furnishings and a palette of blue, grey, white and beige for a Hamptons-country-club-meets-Aussie-seaside elegance that vibes throughout the entire property.
In addition to the reception, lobby and restaurant in the main villa, there’s also a refreshing lap pool, cocktail bar, function venue and Bells Day Spa, offering unique indigenous treatments – an absolute must-do. Whether you’re after a gourmet escape, relaxing retreat or romantic getaway, you’re sure to find it at Bells – a truly special place with home grown hospitality at its finest. bellsatkillcare.com.au
